Commercial Shoot Community Consignments

June 11, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

Community Consignments in Thief River Falls, MN is a magical land of gently used trinkets, bobbles, clothing, furniture and everything in between. For all of you thrifters, bargain hunters and the like, their slogan "A New Treasure Every Day" is enticing. With customers bringing in items daily, you never know what treasures await. I got to chat with Brian Meekma, the owner, about his store, what improvements he's made and still planning, and the awesome things he's doing for our community.

If you have ever visited Community Consignments before, you will see that things are changing, and they look fantastic! Everyone who walked through the door exclaimed how they love the new look. The revamped checkout is now front and center and has both a rustic and modern look with barnwood and metal.

I've been to my fair share of thrift stores, but Community Consignments is different. The whole vibe and look is eclectic, yet very organized and well thought out. Pretty dishes are displayed nicely in coordinating colors, cups and wine glasses are beautifully arranged and tidy, and the wall of Ikea shelves that displays all the pants has my inner perfectionist ooohing and ahhhhing! They even put name tags on all the nicely dressed mannequins! Brian and his awesome crew do a great job at keeping everything beautifully displayed.

We were talking about the weekly drawing Brian holds at the store, usually anywhere from a $25-$50 gift card. He has a lot of customers who donate items so he came up with the idea of a weekly drawing as a fun way to thank his customers. For every $5 dollars spent, you get a ticket for your chance to win. How awesome is that??

 

I also noticed a quilt that was displayed at the store. He explained that he donates articles of clothing that are not sellable to a group that repurposes the material and makes quilts out of them. Be still my upcycling heart! I love Community Consignments, the atmosphere, and most of all the awesome people. Brian is so fun to talk to, is passionate about his community and is doing what he can to make this world just a little brighter!
